Croyde guide

Croyde is known far and wide for its fabulous surfing beach with its consistent waves and soft golden sand. It's the ideal base for a North Devon holiday, being also close to spectacular Saunton Sands beach, family-friendly Woolacombe and unspoilt Putsborough. Then just a few miles inland is the village of Georgeham, home in the 1920s to Henry Williamson, author of 'Tarka the Otter'. It holds some great events too - every year in June look out for GoldCoast Oceanfest.

Croyde village
Picturesque Croyde village is a captivating mix of olde worlde thatched houses, pretty colour-washed cottages and seaside charm. Combine this with Croyde's vibrant surfing culture, and it's easy to see why this charismatic little village is loved by visitors of all ages. Croyde boasts a wide range of amenities with great pubs, including the Thatch, Billy Budd's and the Manor House Inn. There's also a selection of cafes and restaurants, surf wear and gift shops, and the ever popular Croyde Ice Cream Parlour. The post office and general store are open all year round.

Croyde beach
The sheltered beach at Croyde is ideal for families, perfect for rock-pooling and sandcastles, and just a few minutes level walk, through the dunes, from the village. During the season, Croyde Beach is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards making it a safe place to swim or surf with a body board. Surf board hire and tuition is also available.
The beach is magical all year round, whether you choose a traditional summer holiday with the children, or a short break out of season.  You might fancy breezy winter walks with only surfers and seagulls for company, or just want to admire the romantic sunsets.
